Ingredients

  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided
  • 3/4 cup crushed frosted cornflakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Whipped cream

Directions

  1. Using a 1/2-cup ice cream scoop, form 2 balls of ice cream. Cover and freeze for 1 hour or until firm. In a small bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons cream and 1/8 teaspoon vanilla. In a shallow bowl, combine cornflakes and cinnamon. Dip ice cream balls into cream mixture; then roll in cornflake mixture. Set aside remaining cornflake mixture. Cover and freeze for 1 hour or until firm.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining cream and vanilla. Dip ice cream balls into cream mixture; roll in remaining cereal mixture. Cover and freeze for 1 hour or until firm.
  3. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry each ice cream ball for 12-15 seconds or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with whipped cream.
